After a construction period of 2 years and an investment sum of 90 million Euros the new hub for short way traffic at the main station in Graz was completed in time and within budget. The forecourt of the station now showcases with a completely new design. The new canopy, called "Golden Eye" by the population is the striking element. The most important innovation is the tramway line, connecting the 4 tram lines to the station below ground.
The project itself influences the urban concept of the whole urban area around the station. The enhanced attractiveness of the large square is the initial project for the further urban development.
With the new sub terrestrial station the formerly heterogeneous appearance of the square and the dissatisfying traffic pattern could be adapted.
The most significant element of the new design is the roofing of the forecourt – an oval, circular slice, which provides a weather protecting ring to the station's entrance hall. The roof soffit, called "Golden Eye" forms an "exterior hall" related to the existing concourse. The cladding reflects slightly distorted the paving, pedestrians and vehicles and thus creates a film projected on the "canvas of movement".

The architect Marcel Luchian will present the M House residential project from the town of Singera (Chisinau), Republic of Moldavia at the third edition of GIS Architecture Expo Conference.
Marcel Luchian is the director of the architecture and design office Marcel Luchian Studio. He graduated from the Faculty of Interior Design, Architecture and Urbanism at the Technical University of Moldova and the Technical University of Riga. For his Master’s Degree in Architecture and Interior Design, he was admitted to universities as Politecnico di Milano, NABA – Nuova Accademia di Belle Arti, SPD – Scuola Politecnica di Design.
The M House Project surprises through its architecture modernism, unconventional forms and combination of materials (glass, concrete) both as regards facade and interior. The minimalist design harmoniously integrates light, shadow and textures, blending them with the usefulness of natural location as well as the heating and air conditioning system used.
The event has reached its third edition and is dedicated to architects, designers, installation and lighting engineers, owners and managers of hotels and restaurants, developers of office and commercial building projects, fashion retailers, companies with solutions for interiors and to all those interested in interior architecture and design.
The event is organized by ABplus Events and the Order of Architects of Romania, in partnership with IFI, The International Federation of Interior Architects / Designers and IALD, the International Association of Lighting Designers and the Romanian National Lighting Committee (CNRI).
